The Morganist Empire of Greater Pittsburgh is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Cassandria of Morganstar with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.551 billion Pittsburghers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pittsburgh. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pittsburghian economy, worth a remarkable 1,486 trillion Morgan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 226,918 Morgan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. Crime is totally unknown. Greater Pittsburgh's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Antitheistic-Morganism.

Greater Pittsburgh is ranked 31,845th in the world and 1,298th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9,247.94 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
